    It sounds to me like this women needs our care and compassion. She probably has dementia. She probably needs to be in a nursing facility, not riding the train alone.

    The plight of the homeless is gut wrenching. Did anyone offer her help? Is she getting any mental health treatment? Did the officers help her get settled in at the shelter? Will anyone follow-up to get her get the treatment she needs to help her preserve some bit of dignity as a human being? I hope that the answer to all the above is a resounding "yes!"

    As a community, we need to do more to help those at the lowest rung. To truly appreciate the extreme hurdles that the homeless face in bettering their circumstances, I believe that every one of us needs to spend some significant time helping a homeless person. I have done so, and the experience profoundly changed my perceptions.

    Trick shops sell foul odors in an aerosol can. I'm sure that's what they use.

    Just curious. Were the foul odors replaced with other foul odors? By the way the article was written, that appears to have been the case.
